Child Life & Lactation Services
Primary Pediatrics is proud to offer child life services to patients and families in our North Macon location. For many areas of the country, these critical support services are only available in a hospital setting and we’re proud to offer this expertise at our practice.
Our trained child life specialist can ease the stress of medical procedures for your child. Through forming strong bonds with your child, we help them relax when they are anxious about blood draws, vaccines, and other potentially intimidating medical services. It’s beneficial for a child to have a trusted resource at our office, knowing they look out for their best interests.
Our child life services are available during regular appointment hours.
